‘Impunity of the worst kind’ – Nigerians React As APC Fields Muslim-Muslim Presidential Ticket [LOOK]

Must read

Reactions have greeted the choice of Sen Kashim Shettima as the running mate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

Tinubu announced Shettima, on Sunday, July 10, 2022, as his ruling party’s vice presidential candidate, in Daura, Katsina state shortly after paying a Sallah visit to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Shettima is a Senator representing Borno Central District in the nation’s Upper Chamber. He was a two-term governor in Borno state.

His emergence as Tinubu’s running mate has ignited a debate on social media, especially on Twitter where some quarters believe the APC national leader has shot himself in the leg for choosing another Muslim as his vice, known as a Muslim-Muslim ticket in Nigeria’s politics.

The argument on Twitter flawed Tinubu’s audacity to opt for a Muslim-Muslim ticket, a move his two major challenges in the next year’s presidential election, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP) flag bearers, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi respectively avoided, in their bid to win the hearts of Nigerians at the polls.

While some tweeps raised the issue that Chibok girls were kidnapped under Shettima’s watch as a governor in terrorism-laden Borno state in 2014, others concluded that former Lagos governor’s decision left them with two options: Atiku and Obi in the presidential race.

Below are a few of Nigerians’ reactions on Twitter:
